As of today, Motherhood and Muffin Tops is five months old and, coincidentally, just reached 100,000 pageviews a couple of days ago!  Even though I'm new to this blogging world, I'm having the best time here.  I'm so humbled that you would take a minute or two out of your busy day to come by and see what I have to say.  I hope that, every now and then, it's worth your time and effort.  Above all else, I want the things that I post to be uplifting and honor the One who gave me the love of writing.  Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your encouragement.  It has meant the world to me.     

I'm going to be busy for the next week and won't be posting.  Of much more eternal value than the pageviews, my church is having its 175th anniversary this weekend and I'm involved with the committee responsible for the floral arrangements for the weekend's festivities.  We are Baptists, after all, who firmly believe in the formation of committees.  To think that our church predates Lincoln's presidency by 20 years is just mind boggling to me.  May God be glorified there for another 175 years!

As soon as I fulfill that floral duty on Saturday, I'm leaving for market to buy for the gift shop's fall/Christmas seasons.  Mix in Davis being out of town this week and my sweet in-laws being under the weather and needing a little extra help and you have yourself a busy week!   

I can't wait to get back to you though.  I'm sure I'll have a lot of topics to cover!       

And really........thank you again for reading.

See you soon!
